RN Presents — The King Of Kowloon

ABC Radio
Society & CultureDocumentary

He called himself the King of Kowloon and, for almost half a century, he used his misshapen Chinese characters to wage a calligraphic campaign claiming his dominion over Hong Kong. Journalist Louisa Lim grew up in Hong Kong, surrounded by traces of the king, who was first known as a crank, then an artist and finally a most unlikely icon. As she followed his trail, she uncovered a legacy of resistance, she found her city anew. Then she lost it forever.

  • Not much there

    Started this series with “The Somerton Man Mystery”. I have to say this was one of the least satisfying podcast series I have ever listened to. The episodes are short, but even then they contain a lot of filler: time spent repeating what you heard in previous episodes, and drawn out explanations of things that were either obvious from the start or could have been stated in a succinct few sentences. In the end we have a mystery with a lot of questions and few answers—we get a few (possible) cl... more

  • All these people on face value are pathetic

  • Problems with E4 - Face Value

    E4 of face value seems to stop at approx 9 mins in and automatically jumps back to E3, it’s done this about 3 times for me, I’d be keen to hear the end of the series, kinda frustrating!
